Sabbath!


   

At that time, Yeshua went through the grain fields on the Sabbath Day. And His disciples were hungry, and began to pluck the heads of grain and to eat. But when the Pharisees saw, they said to Him: Behold, your disciples do that which it is not lawful to do on the Sabbath Day. But He said to them: Have you not read what David did when he was hungry, and those who were with him, how he entered into the house of Elohim and ate the show bread, which was not lawful for him to eat, nor for those who were with him, but only for the priests? Or have you not read in the Law that on the Sabbath days the priests in the temple profane the Sabbath and are blameless? But I say to you that One greater than the temple is in this place. But if you had known what this is, "I desire mercy and not sacrifice," you would not have condemned those who are not guilty. For the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath. And when He had departed from there, He went into their synagogue. And behold, a man having a withered hand. And they asked Him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath? This so that they might accuse Him. And He said to them:
What man among you will be, who will have one sheep, and if it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will he not lay hold on it and lift it out? How much better is a man then than a sheep? Therefore it is lawful to do well on Sabbath Day. Then He said to the man: Stretch out your hand! And he stretched it out, and it was restored whole like the other. Then the Pharisees went out and held council against Him, as to how they might destroy Him. But when Yeshua knew it, He withdrew Himself from there. And great crowds followed Him, and He healed them all. And He warned them that they not make Him known, so that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: Behold! My Servant whom I have chosen; My Elect, in whom My soul delights. I will put My Spirit in Him, and He shall declare judgment to the nations. He shall not strive, nor cry, nor shall anyone hear His voice in the streets. He will not break a bruised reed, and He will not quench a smoking wick, until He sends out judgment to victory. And in His name the nations shall trust. (Matt 12:1-21)
And they went into Capernaum. And immediately on the Sabbath Day, He entered into the synagogue and taught. And they were astonished at His doctrine. For He taught them as one who had authority, and not like the scribes. And in their synagogue was a man with an unclean spirit. And he cried out, saying: What is to us and to You, Yeshua of Nazareth? Have You come to destroy us? I know You and who You are; the Holy One of Elohim. And Yeshua rebuked him, saying: Be quiet, and come out of him! And the unclean spirit, convulsing him, and crying with a loud voice, he came out of him. They all were amazed, questioning among themselves saying: What is this? What new doctrine is this? For He even commands the unclean spirits with authority, and they obey Him.
And immediately His fame went out into all the Galilean neighborhood. And immediately after they had come out of the synagogue, they entered into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. But Simon's wife's mother lay sick of a fever, and at once they told Him about her. And He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up. And instantly the fever left her, and she served them. And at evening, when the sun set, they brought all those who were diseased to Him, and those who had been demon-possessed. And all the city had gathered at the door. And He healed many who were sick of different diseases, and cast out many demons. And He did not allow the demons to speak, because they knew Him. (Mark 1:21-34)
And He went out from there and came into His native-place, and His disciples followed Him. When the Sabbath Day had come, He began to teach in the synagogue. And many hearing Him, were astonished, saying: Where does this one get these things? And what wisdom is this which is given to Him, that even such mighty works are done by His hands? Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, Joses, Judas and Simon? And are not His sisters here with us? And they were offended at Him. But Yeshua said to them: A prophet is not without honor, except in His native-place and among His own kin and in His own house. So, He could do no work of power there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick ones and healed them. And He marveled because of their unbelief. He went around the villages in a circuit, teaching. (Mark 6:1-6)
My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Messiah Yeshua, The Lord of glory, with respect of persons. For if there comes unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment, and you have respect to him that wears the fine clothing, and say unto him: 'Sit here in a good place' but say to the poor: 'Stand there or sit here under my footstool,' are you not then partial in yourselves, and have become judges with evil thoughts? Hearken my beloved brethren; has not Elohim chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the Kingdom which He has promised to them that Love Him? But you have despised the poor! Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats? Do they not blaspheme that worthy Name by which you are called? If you fulfill the royal law according to the scripture: You shall Love your neighbor as yourself! In this you'll do well. But if you have respect to persons, you commit sin, and are convinced of the Torah as transgressors. For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
For He that said: Do not commit adultery, said also: Do not kill! Now, if you commit no adultery, yet if you kill, you have become a transgressor of the Torah. So you, speak and do, as they that shall be judged by the Law of liberty. For he shall have judgment without mercy, he that has showed no mercy, and mercy rejoices against judgment. What does it profit, my brethren, though a man say he has faith, and have not works? Can faith save him? If a brother or sister is naked, and destitute of daily food, and one of you says unto them: Depart in peace, be warmed and filled! Notwithstanding, you give them not, those things which are needful to the body, what does it profit? Even so faith, if it has not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say: 'You have faith, and I have works!' Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. You believe that there is One Creator? You do well! The devils also believe, and tremble. But will you know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? (James 2:1-20)

He Is Lord Over The Sabbath!

Anything whatsoever that a human does with religious intent, is what is referred to as works-righteousness, just as The Messiahs half-brother plainly expressed. The era and the place of the Pharisees, was not just a random thing. YHVH did not come onto Earth in the Person of (or corporeal Human-hood of) Messiah Yeshua, at some unimportant or random time or place.
He also that received seed among the thorns is he that hears the word; and the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word and he becomes unfruitful! No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will hold to the one and despise the other: You cannot serve Elohim and mammon! (Matt 13:22; Matt 6:24)
Now, the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned, from which some having swerved, have turned aside unto vain jangling, desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say nor whereof they affirm. But we know that the Torah is good, if a man use it lawfully, knowing this: Torah was not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient; for the Godless and for sinners; for the unholy and profane; for murderers of fathers and mothers; for manslaughter's and whoremongers; for them that defile themselves with mankind {homosexuals}; for enslavers {and slaveholders}; for liars; for perjured persons; and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed Elohim, which was committed to my trust. (1Ti 1:5-11)
Beware, lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Messiah Yeshua. For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. And you are complete in Him, which is the head of all principality and power, in whom also you are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Messiah Yeshua. Buried with Him in baptism, wherein you are also risen with Him through the faith of the operation of Elohim, who has raised Him from the dead. And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has quickened together with Him, having forgiven all of your trespasses, blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to His Cross. And having spoiled principalities and powers, He made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
Let no man therefore, judge you in meat or in drink, or in respect of a holy day, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days: They are a shadow of things to come, but the body is of Messiah Yeshua. Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility, or worshiping of angels, intruding into those things, which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, and not holding The Head, from which all the body, by joints and bands, having nourishment, ministered, and knit together, increases with the increase of Adonai our Elohim. Therefore, if you are dead with Messiah Yeshua, from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are you subject to ordinances? Touch not; taste not; handle not; which are all to perish with the using, after the commandments and doctrines of men? Which things have indeed a show of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honor to the satisfying of the flesh. (Col 2:8-23)
Now, of the things that we have spoken, this is the sum: We have such a High Priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens; a Minister of the sanctuary and of the true tabernacle, which The Lord pitched, and not man. For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices. Therefore, it is of necessity that this Man have somewhat also to offer. For if He were on Earth, He should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law, who serve unto the example and shadow of Heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of Elohim, when he was about to make the tabernacle, for says He: See that you make all things according to the pattern showed to you in the mount. But now, He has obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also, He is the Mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises. For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second. For finding fault with them, He says:
Behold, the days come, says Elohim, when I will make a New Covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah, not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, because they continued not in My Covenant, and I regarded them not, says Elohim. For this is the Covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says Elohim: I will put My laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts, and I will be to them as a Father, and they shall be to Me a people, and they shall not teach every man his neighbors, and every man his brother, saying: Know Elohim! For all shall know Me, from the least to the greatest. For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more!* In that He says, a New Covenant, He has made the first old. Now, that which decayed and waxed old is ready to vanish away. (Hebrews 8) {cf. 1Co 13:1-10}
For the Torah, having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices, which they offered year by year continually, make the comers thereunto perfect. For then would they not have ceased to be offered? Because that the worshipers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year. For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. Therefore, when He comes into the world, He says: 'Sacrifice and offering you would not, but a body have you prepared Me; in burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin you have had no pleasure. Then said I, Lo, I come in the volume of the book it is written of Me, to do your will, O Elohim!' Above when He said: 'Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin you would not, neither had pleasure therein' (which are offered by the Torah), then said He: 'Lo, I come to do your will, O Elohim.' He takes away the first, that He may establish the second. By which will, we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Messiah Yeshua, once for all.
And every priest stands daily ministering, and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of Elohim, from henceforth expecting, until His enemies be made His footstool. For by one offering He has perfected forever them that are sanctified. Whereof the Holy Spirit also is a witness to us, for after that He had said before: 'This is the Covenant that I will make with them after those days, says The Lord; I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them, and their sins and iniquities will I remember no more!' Now, where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin. Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Yeshua, by a new and living way, which He has consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of Elohim, let us draw near with a true heart, in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. (Heb 10:1-22)
